  5. Brain injured boy, 12, smashes £25k target to help charity

    A 12-year-old boy with a severe brain injury has raised more than £53,000 to help save the charity that changed his life.

    Oliver Voysey is undertaking a series of challenges in the run-up to his 13th birthday in aid of the Lake District's Calvert Trust, and had hoped to raise £25,000.

    But through an online appeal he has already raised more than £53,000.

    The outdoor activity centre helps children and adults with disabilities and their families.

    It is facing closure after losing more than £1m due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Oliver requires specialist care having suffered a brain injury when he was two days old which left him with sight loss, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism and learning difficulties.
